We had THE most amazing meal here. We went on a recommendation by our guesthouse and we weren't disappointed. The views are stunning, the food was just delicious and our waiter couldn't have been more charming..... And I haven't even got to their piece de resistance - their own vinyard Sauvignon blanc. A real must if in the area.
Oh and I nearly forgot they do a pick up/ drop off service if you really want to get stuck in!!!

Completely understated but fantastic. Amazing views. Staff care and genuinely interested. Food excellent and recommendations spot on with regards wine to match. Little bit rough around the edges but absolutely part of the charm.

Our second visit to Franschhoek and we stayed 7 nights this time. Two trips out to Freedom Hill were definitely the highlight. Superb service, food, ambiance, views and owners and staff really pleased to meet you and serve you. Our hosts in Franschhoek Erica Guesthouse even arranged pickup and drop of for us. Thanks Ryan and Adrian for two great evenings.

This was the resturant with the best service during our 14 night stay in South Africa. Patrick the waiter was exceptional so friendly and happy despite being busy he really made our night. The food was good and it is definately a rising star in Franschhoek.

We stopped by Freedom Hill again yesterday for lunch. Even tho there is construction on the road out front, it's well worth the slight delay. My husband had the eland loin special, and I had the striped sea bass special. Both were terrific! We also went with our server's recommendations for dessert - a fab death by chocolate frozen plate, and a vanilla cheesecake. If you're looking for a relaxing, out-of-the-way, great food, with warm hospitality and a nice wine menu, this is it! Theme dinners are also a treat.
